THUS Scientific American says that two whole townships in the vicinity of the gas explosion in Indiana are one solid gas bed. Tho soil is so saturated with tho gas tha when a stick or crowbar is thrust into tho ground a miniature gas well is produced that will burn when a match is applied.

AB TO the reading of the Bible in the M public schools the Christian Register, of ^Boston, says: "We are not in favor of the making the reading of tho Bible compulsory in tho schools. Tho service is largely perfunctory, and is the occasion of continual dissension. But the study of the Bible in a collegfl, is a different thing. . The student can elect it or as bo chooses. If studied, not microscopically, but with a , broad and general survey, the student .may got an idea ot the wonderful moral force of this collection of snored books, Ho may come to appreciate it as literature, history amlpneiry."

A cancerous affection has attacked the brain. hopeful of the success of the new polar expedition that Norway is now fitting up. Tho old explorer will not go himself, but is intensely interested in tho enterprise. He has a son in tho Arctic region, and ho thinks tbe prevailing conditions ore so fa"orublo that "now is the time to make a dash for the North Pole." The question arises of what value to science or human happiness are these expeditions which have been prolific of nothing but human suffering and of the sacrifice of human life? The Baron answers this question in tho words of Franklin, ''What is the uso of a now born baby?" and adds; "Man should not rest until every spot on the earth has been reached anil carefully examined. Tho North Polo may bo tho key to a thousand things. Who known? It is folly lo cry, What is the use? There is uso in everything, and nothing terrestrial abouhl bo hidden from man." This is very borpis out hardly pertinent. Every -expedition that has over ventured into the frozen regions has been attended with one of two results; either tho expedition has been wiped from the face of thy earth, as i .the wise of Franklin's lust expedition, handful of men have returned, lamod rippled by exposure, as in tho case of ly, leaving the most of companions in their graves g the everlasting snows, "discovery of no other parts of the has been fraught with like coiuli- Thb dangers of navigation, of ;ent of mountains, of tho passes— kless forests once surmounted the is been comparatively clear to reap 'efits of the discovery, and to open untries for emigration and corn- But in polar explorations no such i >ns obtain.

It is said to be possible that modern electricians may succeed in constructing a device that will do for the sense of sight vylmt the telephone does for the sense of hearing, but the prospects for such an achievement are not particularly bright.

If a strongly-illuminated object is placed in front of a transmitter covered with such a salt electrical currents will be generated which will vary in intensity according to the intensity of tbe light fulling on different parts of tho.snrfaco. If, now, these various currents were carried to a receiver similoi.lto a trans>raitter they would produce on its surface changes like those wrought by light on the surface of tbe transmitter. According to the Electrical World an apparatus has been proposed based upon the property peculiar to selenium that its electrical existence changes with tho intensity of light. For a transmitter the selenium cells are arranged in squares like a checkerboard. Tho greater the number the more efficient would the apparatus be. Each of these is connected with the electro-magnet in tho receiver. The latter is composed of a mirror constructed of thin strips of steel, to each of which several of the electromagnets are attached, A strongly illuminated boJy being placed in front of the selenium transmitter the electrical resistance of the various ''cells varies according to the intensity of the light, us in the case of salts of copper anil silver. The various currents affect tho electi o- mntniet in different degrees, the results being that the strips of s:eel are bent irregularly, turning the mirror into an aggregation of surfaces, very slightly warped, which will throw an image on a screen. The nuiin difficulty in the way of tho realization of such an idea as seeing by elcctricy lies in the necessary complexity of an apparatus which sh-ill enable in t numerable points in the transmitters ami'-™ 1 ' iim \ recoivers to be actuated simultaneously hr- 1 . 1 '" ^ noil ' perfect independence, and also in perfeur ^ 8t °Ppod correspondence, but it is quite possibl/' (lowi1 " Wifiajy that further experiment will bring int| CQ off tao l °P «' ' actual uso what might bo somethii/ 0 '? 11 ' 1UK ' tho Y more than a mere plaything.

A millionaire heiress in California is 'I having a good dual of advertising lately,^; It has been discovered that she w young,'.; that she is beautiful, that she has a right to her millions, and, among all the rest of' it, one day she was fouad scrubbing tbe^ back steps of a flat in which her mothtt \ resided. When' one of those fellows who is always discovering things for the betf- efit of his paper suggested to her that it ^ was unusual for a rich girl to clean steps-^ no, that it was unusual for a girl so rich.toy clean tbe steps herself, she blushed prettirjr and immortalized herself, as. a "modef housewife" by giving expression to the commendable theories of its being "every f irl's duty to understand and pratice all ousehold art; should be tho.chief aim of every American girl's education to make a good housewife of herself;" that "tbe idea of hot suds and a rag being, beneath a girl because she was wealthy" did not suit her at all; that if her white hands became rough, "it would be ui honorable roughness, and turkey red from respectable toil, was much better than lily white from idleness." Which all sounds very fine, womanly, brave, heroic, my beautiful Florence. But if the girls with' intelligence, with advantages, with money, ',. are going in for scrubbing, for washing, for sweeping, for the drudgery of a household, what under the sun is going to become of the poor woman who has no advantages and no ability above that kind of labor! Hot soapsuds, rags, turkey red bands and scrubbing is the capital of this woman, and you are taking from her, her individual property, just as surely as those other claimants were trying to deprive you of your wealth. Understanding household wo'rk and the art of making a successful home is every woman's duty.
